Sheffield’s digital marketing festival is back!

Be at Sheffield DM Summer '24 with a 25% discount on tickets.

The Sheffield DM meetup started life in a pub, sparked by an unmet need for local marketing folk to connect, share and learn. More than five years on, the monthly meetup is thriving and the annual conference, Sheffield DM Summer, has become a flagship event for the city, attracting marketers at all stages of their careers, from across the UK. Now in its third year, Sheffield DM Summer 2024 takes place on Thursday 18 July and we’ve secured a 25% discount for the Sheffield Digital community.

Organised by the full-service digital agency Evoluted, Sheffield DM events offer unique opportunities to learn, socialise, and become part of a welcoming, inclusive digital marketing community. Originally starting with a local focus, Sheffield DM now attracts attendees and speakers from all over the UK, thanks to its organic growth fueled by word-of-mouth and social media coverage.

Now in its third year, Sheffield DM Summer continues to grow. The inaugural event in 2022 saw 100 attendees, last year it drew 250, and this year, organisers are aiming for ticket sales of over 300.

Scheduled for 18 July 2024 at The Wave (The University of Sheffield), this year’s event promises to be both relaxed and jam-packed with insightful sessions spanning the entire digital marketing spectrum.

A stellar lineup

Expect to hear from industry leaders like the Head of SEO Communications at Wix, the Global Search Lead at Jaguar Land Rover, and the Editor of Hitched. Topics on the agenda include audience insights, paid media, AI, and much more. The event is carefully segmented into different tracks, ensuring you can easily find the sessions that are most relevant to your interests, whether that’s PPC, SEO, or another area of digital marketing.

Organisers are expecting more than 300 attendees at this year’s Sheffield DM Summer.

Who should attend?

Sheffield DM Summer attracts a diverse range of attendees, from business owners and department heads to managers and junior-level digital marketers. This event is ideal for anyone looking to gain actionable insights and real-world examples from industry experts. Each session includes ample time for audience questions, and the speakers are approachable and available for discussions during breaks.

Learning at every level

Sheffield DM prides itself on facilitating a valuable exchange of knowledge, ensuring that all attendees leave with new strategies and connections to drive their digital marketing efforts forward. Whereas those working on the delivery side of things can immerse themselves in subject specific talks, for leaders, the event offers significant value through peer networking and the chance to share challenges and solutions with others facing similar issues. 

A headline event for the city

Sheffield DM Summer is a key event in the digital industries calendar, attracting the city’s digital marketing talent and an increasing number of visitors from across the UK. Evoluted is doing a remarkable job of spotlighting Sheffield through this event and showcasing the city’s vibrant tech and innovation scene. And there’s a lot more to come from the talented team, they recently launched ‘Nottingham DM’ and have plans to expand to other cities soon.

In a recent podcast, we spoke with Giorgio Cassella, Managing Director at Evoluted. Giorgio shared the origins and evolution of Sheffield DM and described what attendees can expect at this year’s summer conference. You can listen to our conversation here.
